    Is there a way to set up the embedded links in my posts so that when a reader clicks on them a new window opens instead of taking the reader out of my site? For instance, today’s post on my blog (http://bonappetithon.com) has a link to a chocolate shop. When the link is clicked, the new website opens in the current window instead of a new one.

    The blog I need help with is bonappetithon.com.

    You’ll want to be more meticulous about links; that took me to a Page Not Found error. Once I deleted the punctuation, I found it.

    When you put the links in, using the Visual editor you select “Open in new window” in the pop-up TinyMCE box, it’s the middle line of the three. If you’re using the HTML editor instead, in the link code you include

    target=”_blank”

    Thanks, the HTML Editor approach seems to solve the issue. But oddly enough, I couldn’t get the Visual Editor approach to insert a link at all.

    That’s probably a browser issue or firewall. People have been reporting all kinds of problems this week with that.
